 Hey, Space Placers!

Galaxy without stars: A starfield with a small rainbow patch at the middle.

The rainbow-colored light is an artist’s concept of a galaxy without stars called J0613+52. The stars in this image are foreground stars, in our own Milky Way galaxy, from an actual starfield from the Palomar Sky Survey II. Illustration via NSF/ NRAO/ AUI/ P.Vosteen/ Green Bank Observatory.

Read the incredible story about how an error in sky position led to the discovery of a GALAXY THAT HAS NO STARS!

The Universe never ceases to amaze!!!!
